MVAC’s Connie Arzigian will be demonstrating the atlatl at the Whitewater Valley Archaeology and History Festival between noon and 3 pm. Come and practice your skills with the atlatl. The festival will celebrate the fascinating history of the Whitewater Valley. Through demonstrations, hands-on activities and special guest presenters, visitors will be transported back in time. Try your hand at archery or atlatl throwing. Try paddling a canoe or starting a fire with flint and steel. Tour the former camp of the Civilian Conservation Corps and the German POWs who stayed here. Visit the historic Marnach House or take a selfie with Smokey Bear at the Elba Fire Tower. Pick up a schedule of the day's activities at the park office.
Directions: Located 3 miles south of Elba on State Highway 74.
